A Washington, DC Neighborhood

The homes of Chevy Chase, built between 1900 and 1950, are well-known for the great variety of sizes and architectural styles. Chevy Chase is one of the largest neighborhoods in the District running between Wisconsin Avenue to the west, Western Avenue to the north, Rock Creek park to the east and Forest Hills and North Cleveland Park to the south. The variety of sizes and prices of housing means that it is attractive to all age groups. Some of the neighborhoods within this broader area are Barnaby Woods, Hawthorne, Old Chevy Chase, and Tenleytown and Friendship Heights. Not all the areas of Chevy Chase are close to Metro, but all have good access to downtown by bus, and by auto via commuter streets and Rock Creek Park.  Old Chevy Chase starts just east of Connecticut Avenue and runs west to Wisconsin Avenue, with Western Avenue to the north and Tenleytown and Wakefield to the south. It is characterized by stucco, brick and frame colonials built between 1900 and the 1930’s, with many of the houses having old-fashioned details and space. Metro and the shops of Friendship Heights are a short walk, yet the area has a genuine aura of the past. Many of these older homes have been renovated and refurbished, and there are even blocks of semi-detached townhouses interspersed throughout the neighborhood.
